Prisoner, could you throw up some picks of the ramp, and little cove between the ramp and big sandy please? I’m gonna try to get up there next month. I try to get three trips a year there, I’m only gonna be able to make one this year. South cove and meadview is my favorite place in the world. Fishermen’s landing is my favorite bar in the world as well. The meadview motel is my favorite shit hole in the world also.

I went to Mead for years. When its smooth its just like this pics and like a sheet of glass. When its rough its scary. Significantly rougher than Powell, Mohave and Havasu.

@mothershipper we have to keep this secret between us mead boaters. We don’t want it to turn into havazoo..

I pulled into swallow yesterday about 2pm. When all the cops were in there and had the guy in cuffs on the boat.
Toke me 1.5 to find a nice spot to hang out at!
I’ll be out again on Tuesday!
Think I followed a inmate out of swallow tho. Red/white/grey eliminator. Forgot his sn tho.

we saw you guys tied up in Swallow. We circled in at about 10:45 and ended up in a really small beach almost directly across from you. We were in a Hallett 400
With the rainbow flag right? We saw you!

@The Prisoner why go there over temple?
Never been that high. I saw pictures of the brown water thought is was just a little passed temple didn’t realize there was another ramp that far way! Gonna have to try and go from callville up that way to check the rest of the lake out. Have been putting a lot of hours the boat recently so neeed to explore new areas

Mainly because it only an hour and 20 minutes away. Plus we have to service a telephone substation in Meadview so it’s a kill 2 birds with one stone kind of deal.

And the water is too flat , no way
Idk how fimiliar you are with lake mead. But the cove he’s in is very protected. There’s a no wake zone around the bend about 200 yards so it’s always pretty flat in that cove.

Is it just me or is lake mead’s water temp in the 90s in July and August? Feels like a hot tub when you get in to cool off. Almost like there’s no fresh water current.
